Extending the summer festival season by one more day, Brighton Racecourse will be hosting a brand new festival on 1st October, featuring a plethora of in-demand DJ talent and live acts. Across multiple stages hosted by leading brands, Connected, Space Ibiza, Café Mambo and our very own Brighton Source, Party At The Races is a music extravaganza with all the fun of a day out at the races, complete with a vintage funfair and virtual horse racing.
Joining the likes of Basement Jaxx, Youngr, Felon, Camelphat and Rhythm Masters are seven-times platinum selling artist Jonas Blue, Space Ibiza resident Jason Bye, house and bass duo Apexape, mash-up DJ duo Shapes, hit maker DJ / Producer Anton Powers.
Crossing genres into indie-pop, groovy rhythms and dirty blues on the Brighton Source Stage are some of Brighton’s most exciting ‘one to watch’ acts. Latest additions to the line-up include White Room, whose critically acclaimed debut EP ‘Fizzy Liquid’ earned them a fan in Paul Weller, and the brilliant modern blues singer/guitarist Joe Corbin, who won over an army of fans at Glastonbury.
Revellers are encouraged to dress for the occasion in bright jockey outfits and race day glad rags, while listening to the sounds of thundering hooves and booming basslines, sampling delicious cocktails and gourmet food, and feasting their eyes on the exceptional views of Brighton’s coastline. From 1pm until 3am, festivalgoers can dance from day to night and VIP ticketholders can party in style at the Jockey Club with Café Mambo.
Before the main event, Party At The Races will throw the ultimate pre-party, ‘Party In A Pod’, in the newly opened i360 at the historic west pier. 190 lucky clubbers will get to party at an incredible 450 feet above sea level in the world’s tallest moving observation tower, taking in 360 degree views of Brighton to a soundtrack provided by a special guest DJ.
Expect nothing less than state-of-the-art production and the very best sounds in electronic and live music. Party At The Races is the last chance to party for the summer, and with the latest line-up announcements, is set to become one of the most talked about music events of the year.
